Do you need to improve your English skills? 

WCJC Adult Education and Literacy ESL classes are designed for non-English learners and include instruction on proper pronunciation and use of English language structures. Classes will help ESL students to become more effective in conversation by focusing on strategies for initiating conversation, using functional language, and improving listening skills.
